When you think of biker leather jackets and men in leather jackets in the movies one of the first films that probably springs to mind is the classic 1953 film, The Wild One, starring a young, ruggedly handsome Marlon Brando. This black leather biker style version was inspired directly by that classic piece of cinema and the look that became an instant hit with young rebels in the early to mid-1950’s.
The Wild One is the story of two rival motorcycle gangs who wreak havoc and strike terror into the hearts of their local small town community when one of the gang leaders are thrown into jail. Brando epitomizes nonchalant cool in the role of Johnny Strabler, leader of the Black Rebels motorcycle gang, and his white t-shirts and black leather jackets worn in the movie have become an enduring symbol of teenage rebellion that lives on even today.
Our versions of Marlon Brando / Johnny Strabler’s motorbike leather jackets are hand crafted by talented artisans. This jacket has a front zipper closure and three zipper pockets. The classic V-neck shape collar and lapels are button down with popper style buttons whilst the ultimate finishing touch is provided by the tough guy belt. We only use the best quality YKK zippers and all stitching is doubled up on for strength and longevity.
